Chief Supt Tony Cherington said: “I want to make it quite clear that we will use all necessary resources to prevent, disrupt and close down illegal raves in this county. We have issued this warning as we approach the Christmas and New Year period, re-iterating the message that these events are unsafe and disruptive to our local communities.

“We will continue to take a hard line against the people behind these events. We shall prosecute and seize and destroy the equipment of anyone found to be involved in their organisation. We will be putting on a significant police presence over Christmas and New Year to achieve this objective.”

Anyone with information about illegal raves should contact Norfolk Police on 0845 4564567.
